City Clerk Foley occupied his position for the first time.

application for the combined offices,

not prepared to answer just on thc
Aid. Bradshaw thought the ques-
tions out of order. The mayor (stated
the previous resolution of the council
combining: all the offices was out of

A Hard Journey Into the Little Slocan
Mnxv Heckmann and the late
"Cnyuso" Brown recently made a
tough prospecting trip to the headwaters of the Little Slocan river.
They were two weeks mn king the
trip from here and were in rain or
snow evcrv dav. Added to this all
their supplies gave out save a little
salt and for a weekthey had nothing
but porcupine, goat and deer to eat.
Thev found numerous indications of
copper nnd iron, but no galena. The
formation of the country is granite
and lime and would be easy to work.
The main stream is about 40 miles
long from the Little Slocan lakes and
takes a sweep to thc north, the headwaters being close to those of one
hard traveling. Just now the streams
are running full and the ground is
swampy and covered  with thick underbrush.     When  Heckmann  and
Brown came out they cut ncross the
country and struck and followed up |
a  big  creek.   To their surprise  iti
brought them out at Little  Slocan
lake.   The creek waa 14 miles long |
and heads between Goat creek and
the main Little Slocan river.   The |
men afterwards lost their salt andj
t!iev hnd nothing but a little dried ]
deer meat to eat.   Thisgave out and;      .        . .       .    , ...

—Josh Wink in Baltimore Ams
The tramp sank his spade deep In the
earth, and as he drew it ap and flung the
dark, rich earth aside voices came to him
through tbe nenrby window. He straightened up and listened for a moment. His
mouth slightly parted; his lips half closed.
He crept nearer the window and leaned
on the spade. For fully ten minutes he
scarcely moved. A dark scowl crossed
his lace and lingered there.
The tramp was tattered and torn, and
his face was inflamed, and his eyes were
bleary, but there was still a heart beneath his soiled and ragged coat, and that
heart had been won by kindness.
When he came limping up to tbe farmhouse that morning, the farmer had
looked at him askance, and the farmer's
dog had blinked up at his master as if
awaiting the word to hustle the stranger
down the lane.
And then the farmer's wife had come
to thc door, a gentle faced woman with a
soft voice, and she listened to his story
and brought him bread and meat and told
him to rest in the shade of the apple tree.
And somehow the gentle faced woman reminded him of the mother whose precepts he bad disregarded and whose heart
he had broken, and such a lump had risen
in his throat that for a time he found it
quite Impossible to eat. And when he
finally disposed of the food and drank a
cnp of water from the cool depths of the
ancient well he wandered down to a little
brook that flowed in the ravine that skirted the orchard and bathed his face and
bands and straightened his tangled hair.
Then he came back to the house and,
rapping at the door, asked the gentle
faced woman if sbe had any work he
could do.
"Art still here?" she asked in a soft
wolce.   "I thongbt thee had gone."
"I'm still here," said the tramp, as he'
drew his tattered hat from his head. "I
have a chronic way of wearing out my
welcome. But if you have any work to
do that will enable me to pay for the food
jou gave me. I'm in the humor to do it."
She looked at him a little doubtfully
and read the secret of his downfall in his
fiery visage and softly sighed.
"What I gave thee, 1 gave willingly,"
she said, " and without thought of recompense. But if thee Is really in earnest
about desiring work, thee can take the
spade that leans against the well box
yonder and spade np my flower bed here."
The tramp replaced his hat and found
the spiide and set to work.
And while he was working he heard the
sound of wheels, and looking through the
Tines at the house corner saw a horse and
light wagon stop in front of the farm
house. Presently a mnn came up the
pathway—a man of light build, with
tirigbt eyes and a heavy black mustache.
Be was dressed In a rather extreme style,
and even the tramp—who was once a
gentleman himself—knew that this was
not a gentleman.
Presently tbe farmer, busy In the barn,
Iras summoned to the house by his wife's
call. It was nearly a half hour later that
tbe tramp beard the loud voices within.
It was the voice of the farmer that was
"You got that note by a scoundrel
trick I" be cried. "Your partner asked me
to sign an order tor ten bushels ot Belgian oats, and now you say I signed a
note—a note for $7001 God, man! It
would ruin me to pay It!"
"It's for value received all right
enough," said the stranger In a cool, even
voice. "I don't know anything about
your signing it, but tbe signature is yours
•nd that's all we care to know. If yon
refuse payment, we will simply have to
eue and sell you out"
The tramp listening at the window
coulsl hear tbe farmer pacing heavily np
•nd down the room, and he thought that
he heard the farmer's wife sobbing.
"I'll gee a lawyer," aaid the farmer
"Certainly." sa'd the stranger. "See
him, and he'll tell you fast enough that
there's no help for you. No, my man,
you are In for lt Better sell something
•nd settle."
"I'll see a lawyer," groaned the farmer.
"Very well." said the stranger. "We
•re disposed to be as lenient as possible.
See your lawyer, and If you are not willing
to pay up promptly wben I come for satisfaction day after tomorrow, at this
hour. why. we will bave to commence
•nit.   Good day."
The tramp beard the door open and
peering through the vines saw the stranger walking leisurely down the pathway.
Then he turned and rapped at tbe door.
Tbere were tears In her eyes as the farmer's wife opened It.
"Madam," said the tramp, "I have re-
considered my willingness to spade up
your flower bed.   There's your spade."
And before she could reply be hnd turned snd was walking quickly along tha
lane that led to tbe woods. As soon as
he was ont of sight of the house he broke
Into s run. Just before be entered the
woods he looked <ver bis shoulder and
•aw the stranger leisurely driving along
tbe road below.
The tramp knew that the rond over
which the stranger was driving dipped to
tbe left to cross the little ravine nmi then
wound round tbe Wsu.JS to the right In a
long curve. lie knew be had plenty of
time to cut itemes an 1 reach tho roud before the stranger and bis deliberate horse
Tbe tramp, familiar with human deception In many forms, knew all about the
particular system of swindling of which
tha farmer waa the victim. It was an
easy   game  when  played  by   a  clever
".harper on an unsuspecting and unsophisticated countryman. All lt required was
a glib tongue, a little flattery, a pretended
business mission and a substituted sheet
of paper. Then in due time came the
confederate with his bold front and the
fatal note.
The tramp was lurking by tbe roadside
as the man In the light wagon caste up.
He lounged out into the highway.
"Hello, Bill," he said.
The   driver   drew   up   suddenly   and
stared at tbe figure at the horse's bead.
"What's that?" he cried.
"It's your name,"* laughed thc tramp.
"Bill—Bill Sutherland, sometimes called
•the Gopher.*   How are you, Bill?"
The stranger scowled darkly.
"What do you mean?" he snarled.   "I
don't know you."
"Glad of that, Bill," said the vagabond.
"Three years of tramping change a man.
But I know you, and that's enough."
"What do you want?" growled the
"BUI," said the tramp, "I want a little
assistance. You might not think it. but
I'm hard up."
He had come to the side of the wagon
as be spoke and stood with one band on
the dashboard.
"Is this a hold up?" said the stranger
and, shifting bis whip to his left band,
slipped the right behind him.
"Steady, Bill," said (be tramp as be
reached forward and caught the stranger's arm. "None of that. Your pocket-
book isn't there; it Is in your breast pocket.   I'll trouble you for it."
"Curse you!" screamed the stranger.
"Let go of me!"
And he struck the tramp with nil his
force across the head with the whip. The
vagabond shrieked with pain and the
next instant had grappled the stranger
and with a remarkable show of strength
drew him from the wagon and hurled him
heavily to the ground «
The startled horse ran a little way
and then, turning sharply, started into a
fence corner and stood there trembling.
The tramp stood by the prostrate and
unconscious man and drew from bis
pockets first tbe loaded revolver and then
the long pocketbook. He hastily opened
the latter and assured himself that what
be wanted was there. Then be thrust
tbe book into his own ragged breast pocket and drew himself up. The stranger
was rousing from bis swoon.
Presently he sat np nnd looked around
with a confused air. Tbe tramp, a few
feet away, was quietly regarding him, revolver in hand. The stranger put his
band to his breast pocket.
"Curse you," he growled, "this Is highway robbery!"
"You ought to know," said tbe tramp
quietly. "It's one ot your leading accomplishments.   Get up."
The stranger arose.
"Pick up your bat," said tbe tramp.
"Now go and get yonr horse Into the
He followed close behind as the stranger backed the light wagon into tbe highway.
"I'll kill yon for this." the despoiled
one snarled.
"Don't trouble yourself," said the
tramp. "Just climb into the wagon and
start yonr horse. I'll see you off. Step
lively, please." And he flourished the revolver.
The stranger obeyed. He gave the
tramp a look that was meant to be malevolent, and the tramp returned him a
smile. Then he touched the horse with
the whip and drove away.
The vagabond watched until a curve In
the road hid him from sight, and then be
darted Into the woods again and swiftly
retraced his steps. Presently he recrossed
the ravine, and then he paused, ne
slipped the revolver into an inner pocket
and then took a slip of paper from the
stranger's book. A moment or two later
he knocked nt the farmer's door.
It was opened by the farmer's wife.
Her eyes were still red with weeping.
"Thee here again?" she said.
"Yes." replied the tramp. "I've come
back to pay you for that good dinner."
He pressed a little forward, ond she gave
way before him, and he passed Into the
At the window sat the farmer with his
head bowed over a huge volume that lay
open across his knees. He looked up
wondering as the tromp entered. The
vagabond raised his hand to his hat. and
then remembered nnd let his hand fall
"I am glad to see a little fire In your
fireplace," he said, "because I want to
add to It." ne moved a little nearer the
window. "See. dear lady," he softly
said, "here is your pay. Look, but don't
touch It."
Impelled by his earnest manner the woman came closer and glnnced at the slip
of paper he opened before ber eyes.
"Father!" she easpod.
The old man started and arose with the
book in his nrms.
"What is it?" he asked.   The vagabond
pushed the note nearer hlra.   "My note!" |
he cried.   "Wh-where did yon get It?"
"I spoiled an Egyptian," laughed the
tramp. "It tells about the process there."
ond he pointed to the big book. "Now
watch me." He stepped quickly to the
fireplace and held the note io the flame
until it wns entirely consumed.
"Thank God!" murmured the old man.
with a sigh of relief.
"Thee hns been hurt." cried the woman; "there Is blood on thy forehead."
"It Is nothing." sold the vagabond.
"Tbere, you see. the debt Is paid. I won't
osk for a receipt. You'll be troubled no
more.   Goodby."
"Stay!" cried the aged couple In one
"No." snld the tramp. "I cannot stay.

I wouldn't have him sec me here."
"Antl why hast thsiu done this grent
service for us?" tho old lady asked.
"You were kind to me." said the tramp
very softly, "nnd you made rae think of
my mother.   Goodby." And he wns gone.
He hurried down to the brook in the
ravine and. tenderly removing his hut,
carefully bathed his wounded head.
Then he started ngnifa for the woods.

Surgeon (nfter the operation)—I am

You'll allow me nomntlilng for It, I suppose, doctor?—Chicago Tribune.
"Tbere must be a girl In it," said John
Locke as he took down his overcoat. "I
never saw a fellow more anxious to get
home nights than you are."
"I do enjoy my evenings," laughed Elmer Stearns, "and I have a very pleasant
companion." Then he walked away
whistling softly to himself.
Elmer Stearns had many pleasant acquaintances In New York, but so far only
one friend. Elmer was a quiet fellow
who stuck to his work while in the big
counting room, but from the moment he
left lt banished all thoughts of business
and gave himself up to the enjoyment of
his books, his pipe and his faithful friend,
a pure bred pointer named Clover.
He stopped for her now at a neighboring stable and the two went on together
to bis boarding place. Mrs. Nubbs, his
landlady, bad said "No" very vigorously
wheu Elmer had a-pked if be might keep
a dog, but after Clover had waltzed,
stood In tbe corner and finally gone to
her beseechingly ond made her best bow,
all in response to Elmer's command, "Go
and beg her to let you come, Clover,"
ber face relaxed and she said, "I never
allow no dogs here, Mr. Stearns, so don't
ever let me see that animal go in tbat
door or over those stairs."
Elmer was not obtuse and understood
the emphasis on the word "see."
He easily taught Clover to slip by blm
into tbe hall and over tbe stairs at a
bound, so Mrs. Nubbs never saw her
come in, though sbe often shut the dining
room door in order that she should not,
aad she silently handed Elmer a brown
paper parcel every nigbt which was always found to contain tidbits for the dog.
City life was new and strange to them
both, and though the dog found Interest
nnd variety in the novel things sbe saw
from the gate of tbe box stall where she
spei ber days, and Elmer enjoyed doing
the work be was fitted for. both felt a
great relaxation when tbe day was over
and they were together again.
If the man wished to read or write
without Interruption, the dog sat motionless by his'side, sometimes resting ber
bead quietly on his knee to invite a caress. If the mon was pensive ond wished
to smoke snd muse, tbe dog put her paws
on his knee ond rested her head on bis
shoulder, and thus they sat bour after
Her personal beauty would bave delighted any dog fancier. Sbe had a coat
like satin, brown bead penciled evenly
with white up the forehead, and on ber
back was a well defined four leaved
clover in brown, of which her brown tail
formed the stem. The rest of her wss
purest white. This odd marking explained her name.
With this sympathetic companionship
Elmer Stearns was content and rarely
felt lonely during the long winter evenings. He kept early bedtime and spread
a shawl on the foot of bis bed for Clover,
and the two friends slept os only healthy,
free hearted animals can.
The winter passed, and one sloppy
April day Elmer called at tbe stable for
hia dog. Mike, tbe groom, came forward
with sorrow pictured on his kind face.
"I don't know anything about it ot oil,
but the door must hev been unlocked.
I've been here every minute of the day
except Just two hours. I missed her
about 4 o'clock, and I wolks over and
looks In the stall, and the door was a bit
of a crack open and no dog inside."
Elmer went to his boarding boose to
see if the dog bad been there, then back
to tbe office and then to the police. Next
day be advertised, and for many days he
tried every possible means to trace the
missing dog and finally decided she was
stolen and beyond his reocb.
The summer days droggad on. and the
heat of the city became almost Intolerable. Elmer bad promised himself a vacation In tbe mountains, but hunting
without Clover would be sorry sport.
However, tbe weeks set apart for blm on
lhe schedule of the great business bouse
were at hand, ond he was wondering
moodily what he should do with tbem as
be walked to bis boarding house one sultry August day.
As be neored tbe bouse be started suddenly, for on the steps sat a brown nnd
white dog, gazing wistfully at him.
(■ainlng bis room, he took tbe great dog
bodily in bis arms ond hugged her tight,
and they rolled and frolicked together on
the dusty carpet.
So Clover and her master took a two
weeks' hunting trip, and they were short
ond happy weeks. They returned together rather reluctantly and mounting
tbe dingy stairway to the stuffy city
room began to unpack.
As they were thus occupied there came
a sharp ring at the doorbell, which was
answered by Mrs. Nubbs. She drew
herself up stiffly when she faced a blue
coated oflicer.
"Docs any of your boarders keep a
dog?" he queried.
"Well, I fhoultl say not," she answered
fiercely. "What sort of a house do you
think I have here. One of my young
men did bring o dog here, and I told him
never to let me see a dog come Into this
house. That was six months ago, and 1
ain't never teen a dog come In here
"The man ond dog passed in here,"
ssld n young woman standing by the officer's side.
So they Instlgnted tbelr search and In
due time knocked ot Elmer Stearns' door.
"There be Is!" cried the girl, and to
Elmer's unbounded astonishment sbe
rushed Into the room and began to lavlifc
carriers on Clover.
"There Is soinr mistake here," ha ra
marked quietly. "May I ask why you
manifest so much Interest in my dog?"
"Your dog!" cried the girl. "I'd like to
see you prove it."
"Let the dog speak for herself," he
suggested mildly. Clover stood looking
trom one to the other with sad eyes.
"Sit here, please." sold Elmer, "and I
will go quite to the other side of tho
room. Now we will call her together
and see what she will do."
"Clover, come here," the man said
"Come, Lucky, Lucky," pleaded the
Clove*, stood with her tail and ears
dropping. The woman was nearer. In
passing her Clover stooped and allowed
tbe girl to stroke her and even licked
ber cheek. But the dog's eyes were on
Elmer, and as soon as poslble sbe broke
away and came to him.
"You see," cried the girl, "she enme tome first your own proof Is against you.
Let us go, officer.   Come, Lucky."
And placing ber hand on Clover's collar she led her out of the room and down
the stairs. Elmer beard a cab door slam
and sat down wearily, wondering what
to do.
He decided to wait quietly for tbe dog's
return and watched eagerly each night
for it. Two weeks went by, when John
Locke Invited him to spend the evening
at bis home. "It's a meeting of a little
informal card club," be explained, "without constitution or bylaws. The host can
invite one friend, and a sceond invitation
makes yon a member."
Elmer's evenings were long now; so,
though he disliked cards, he went.
He met 15 pleasant young people and
among them Miss Esther Daly. He recognized ber instantly as the young lady
who had claimed his dog, but she showed
no sign of recognition.
Before the evening was over he was
head over heels in love. When a man
reaches the age ot 30 without a love affair, he is apt to make a short cut of it.
Elmer Stearns received an invitation
from the next hostess and was thus installed a member of the Informal club.
At the weekly meetings be met Esther,
and soon they were on excellent terms.
At Inst it was ber turn to entertain the
club and there he met Clover. The dog
was overjoyed and plainly showed her
pleasure. Esther was surprised and said
it was very unusual for her to show any
interest In a stranger. As tor Elmer, he
snubbed Clover unmercifully in spite of
her joyful whines and manifestations of
love for him.
Clover thought It over sadly as tha
gardener tied her rope that night, and she
decided on o desperate course. She knew
the way quite well now to her old master, though sbe had made it before In the
daytime. The rope was a new thing
since she had gone home before, and aha
resented It.
She set ber firm teeth ln It and man*
aged to tear away a few shreds, but it
was a big rope and she tore her mouth
more than she did the rope. Then she
strained ber collar and the metal edge
cut her neck, but she strained hard and
it came over her bead with a jerk and
sbe was free.
Elmer was awakened by a scratch oa
tbe front door and ran down stairs without waiting for clothes. Clover slipped
in up stairs in her old way and soon both
were asleep.
He telephoned Esther in the morning
that he hud found Lucky and would bring
her bock tbat evening. Clover's tail
hung lower and lower as sbe found herself near her former home—for home it
had never become to her—but Elmer
urged her on.
"How strange tbat she shonld hsva
come to your rooms," said Esther, "and
last night she seemed to be glad to see
you. Have you some mysterious power
over dogs, or"—and then came the gleam
of recognition Elmer had always feared—
"yes." she said breathlessly, "you are
the man."
He answered by calling Clover to blm
snd putting her through many clever
tricks. Then he told her frnnkly all
about Clover, while the dog sat by whining dolefully and keeping on tbe side of
bis master farthest from Esther.
Tbe girl's cheeks burned h.n at ths
clow of the recital. "Dncle Horry gave
blm to me on the date yon Inst him, my
twentieth birthday. 1 supposed be bought
him, but be must bave picked him up on
the street. Whatever shall I do to make
it up to you?"
"There is one way thst would mora
than make up. dear." he said
"I'll try," she whispered, "and you
sball take Clover home with ynu till-
then, and," sbe added, with laughing
eyes. "Clover shall go on the wedding

"Besides tbe advantage of light." snld
tbe business man on the top floor of a
skyscraper, "we fellows on tbe upper
floors have another advantage over tbe
tenants on the lower floors. We get our
mail up here at least a half hour earlier
than they do way down stairs. You see,
digging a well and carrying the mail in
toll buildings are two things which It is
best to begin at the top. Usually we caution the young man to begin at tbe bottom and work up. The well borer ; an't

well. If the mall mnn began to deliver
letters in an office building on tbe bottom,
he would have to walk up each flight ot
stairs from floor to floor or make the elevator man angry by stopping him constantly for one flight rides. But by riding to the top and working his way down

stories. He finds it much easier to walk
down stairs all day with a heavy mail
bag than to be continually walking up.
That's why we fellows on tbe top floor always get our mall a bolt bour ohead of
tbe men on the ground floor, who have
other advantages."—New York Sun.
The Wise Man's Theory and How It
Was Exploded.
"After ull," snld the wise man, "what
la It but selfishness? The optimist who
goes through life whistling and singing
songs of cheer Is not entitled to any
special credit, because lt is a pleasure
to him to be happy. If It didn't make
him glad to be happy, he wouldn't be
that way. So you see selfishness lies
at the bottom of his good cheer.
"Then there Is tho pessimist. Is ho
discouraged because ho thinks It Is his
duty to mankind to paint dark pictures? Not at all. His Is another clear
case of selfishness. He gratifies himself by being unhappy and trying to
make others so. Love, too, Is selfishness. The maiden doesn't luve the man
to make him glad. It's her own happiness that she promotes ln looking upon
blm as tbe noblest work of God. Man'a
love for woman bas back of lt the same
selfish motive.
"So, too, the philanthropist's love of
the world.   He loves lt and loves to do
| great things for It because lt gives blm
' a satisfaction to know tbat be Is doing
1 well.
I "Consider It from whatever stand*
! point you please, and you must always
arrive at the same conclusion. Everything that man does he does selfishly.
It Is alwaya a case of gratifying hla
own Inclinations.   It"—
Just then the wise man turned a somersault and skinned bis nose against a
water plug. When be got up and looked around, wltb tbe look of one who
was beginning to remember things that
bad long been forgotten, bis pupil
"Was It selfishness that Impelled yon
to stub your toe? Did you do It because It brought a sense of gratification
to your"—
"Say, you confounded Idiot," the wise
mnn replied, "you ought to have that
grin photographed. It would make a
good frontispiece to Darwin's works."
Actor Crane Appropriated the Hend-
gear of a Kunaaa Statesman.
Among the stories that are retailed
In the cloakroom of tlie senate wben
that boay Is In session at Washington
Is one of how William H. Crone, tbe
actor, put tbe finishing touches upon
his great chnructer study, "The Senator."
"As you well know." ssld one of tha
group. "Crone took bis character almost directly from Senator Plumb of
Kansas. Crane bud just started out
with The Seuntor' und hud opened In
Washington. We bad nil seeu the per-
t'liriimuce and liked it Immensely. But
I thought 1 saw one defect Crane

tlljf, Wltb the Imitation of I'lutnb. wbo

litliiinit'il hat of tbe southerner. One
pveillUK when Crane. Ingalla, Plumb
uml myself happened to be dining together I remarked ta Crime about the
mutter or the high hat.
""You reiilly ought not to wear It
for It is not in keeping wltb tbe character,' snid 1. 'You ought to wear one
like Pluuibs.'
"Crane did not say much In answer,
but when he arose from the table lie j
reached out for Plumb's lint ami calmly put it ou. Leaving bis own bnt for
PlUtllb, Crane went off down Ibe street j

Alvary Finished the Kin.
"A benutlfiV scene," said an old thea-
ter goer, "may be utterly ruined by
some trifling mistake, and an error of
seemingly tnfliiltesliunl dimensions
throw out nn entire company. Often* i
times, however, thc ready wit and prus.
enee of mind of nn actor or actress may
snve the day ami turn what might oth-
erwlse have been disaster into triumph.
One of the most difficult of all Bcenes to
carry oft successfully occurs ln the op.
era of 'Siegfried.' You will remember
that Siegfried awakens Brunnhiuii
from her long sleep with a kiss. Wag.
ner has so arranged It that the kiss
seems as long to the audience as the
Immortal slumber itself. In reality it
lasts about 70 seconds, but It seems unending. It Is a most trying situation
for the alngers. for the audience Ib ex.
trcmely likely to grow restless.
"Some years ago at a performance of
'Siegfried' In St. Louis Alvary—poor
chap!—was singing Siegfried to Mme.
Sucher's Brunnliilde. He hnd got about
half way through his lengthy osculation when tbe gallery began a succession of smacks, constantly Increasing
In volume. It wns a critical moment;
but, ns the event proved, one tbat wns
to odd to Alvery's already large wreath
of luttrels.
"Slowly he raised his magnificently
handsome bead and turned toward the
audience and silently looked tbe galleries Into silence, ln ten seconds be had
completely innstered them, and j-oq
could have beard a pin drop In the
great houBe. Then be dropped his face
on that of Briiunhilde, and tbat kiss
went on to Its appointed and Bapuollke
finish without further Interruption
from the audience. It wns as tine na
exhibition of the control a great personality can exercise over an audience
as I have ever witnessed."
RU After Dinner Speech.
Tbere Is no field of mental effort la
which success In Its most flattering
form may be won quicker than on the
after dinner platform. The man who
can amuse and Instruct such an audi*
ence, for Instance, as that wblcb as-
semblea each year at tbe New England
society dinner, perhaps the most critical In New York, may awake to find
himself famous. A few hours before
Henry W. Grady of Atlanta was to
speak at the New England society's
dinner ln 1SS0 a correspondent of a
southern newspaper asked blm wbat
he would say, and be replied:
"Tbe Lord only knows. I have

Kidney I'llls —Another Triumph for
Unit Wnisslerl'ul Hem. ily — His Eyesight hus been Strengthened,
St. Epi, Quo., June 34.—(Special)—
Oae year ago a miracle was announced ,n Chicago. R. A. Wade, the
great .-riminal lawyer, regained hi*
sight after having for years been totally olind. His ccuse was published
throughout the length and breadth of
America, and it attracted more action to Dodd's Kidney Pills than any
medicine ever got before. For it was
Dodd's Kidney Pills that restored
his sight.
A similar case has turned up in the
village of St. Bpl, Quo. Though this
sufferer was not stone blind, his eyes
nevertheless were utterly useless lo
him by lamplight. And they have been
completely restored by Dodd's Kidney
Pills, which is another point of similarity.
There is no attempt made to assert Dodd's Kidney Pills are a cure
for blindness. Dodd's Kidney Pills
are the greatest kidney medicine ever
known. That is thi claim made for
Dodd's Kidney Pills, and there is ev'-
dence enough to prove that claim.
Dut in cases where Kidney Diseaso
has left poisons in the blood, and
the said poisons attacking the weakest spot, injure the eye, Dodd's Kidney pills are just as infallible a_s
where the poison attacks the Joint
of the arm or the small of the back.
That the eyesight of Thomas St.
Pierre was restored is but another
argument that Dodd's Kidney Pills
make the blood absolutely pure.
Here is Mr. St. Pierre's letter : "I
am happy today to see my health entirely re-established by Dodd's Kidney Pills. I owe that wonderful remedy a thousand thanks. Before using Dodd's Kidney Pills I had consulted many physicians and taken
medicines of various kinds, but each
made me worse. I had a constant
pain in the back and limbs. At
night I could'nt res', and I could not
si*e by lamplight. Having taken on'.v
two boxes of Dodd's KidneyPills I am
perfectly cured. My eyesight is clear,
I advise all those whose health is not
good, from whatever cause, to tr;.'
Dodd's Kidney Pills. Nine times ou'.
oi ten they will be exactly what is
wanted. Two dollars spent for
Dodd's Kidney Pills will do mote
than millions spent otherwise, for
who holds anything in the world
moro dear than health, or would
spare ony means to save it ? "

The Height of the Table.
There was a certain Major X. who
had for some years enjoyed tho reputation of being one of the wildest men in
India. Making a call on one occasion
on a mess, he found Captain Z„ whom
he wanted, out, but the moss waiter assured fflni that tbe latter would soon
return, wherefore he waited in the anteroom.
A few minutes later the mess sergeant, happening to pass the window,
noticed to his surprise tbat Major X.
had passed into the messroom beyond
and was applying a tape measure to
the mess table. Naturally considering
this an odd proceeding, he mentioned
lt later on ln the day to Captain Z„ who
took counsel and then begged a favor
of the colonel, which was to allow an
Inch to be sawed off the table legs. In
due course Mnjor X. was invited to dinner, nnd the mess was there to a man.
As was expected, during dessert be
contrived to lead the conversation on to
guessing heights, and from that to offering to bet on the present mahogany
wns but a step. They took him on, from
colonel down to the youngest sub. Even
tbe chaplain could not resist the temptation to chastise the unrighteous and
ventured his nilte. The challenger bet
first, just an eighth of an Inch beyond
the old height, nnd then the mess. In rotation, guessed exactly the same, and
all guessed exactly right. He was done
completely.—London Free Lance.

She Was Completely Kun Down — Knckesl
with Psslns. Its ths* Hack, Ilsnsl and Limbs
—Again It jiiit'iiiK In Good Health.
From the Sun, Orangeville, Ont.
Many cases are constantly being
brought to light by persons being
cured by that wonderful remedy—Dr.
Williams' Pink Fills—after doctors
have failed to be a benefit. Among
them may be noted tho case of Mrs.
Benjamin Harrison, a well known
lady who resides in the near vicin ty
of Orangeville, Ont. A reporter of
the Sun hearing of Mrs. Harrison's
wonderful cure, called at her home to
inquire into the facts of the case.
Mrs. Harrison said she was pleased
to be able to testify to the great
urative powers of these pills. She
said: 'For some years I have been a
constant sufferer. Just what to call
my disease I do not know; even the
doctors were unable to diagnose it.
I was completely run down, I had
racking pams in my head, back and
limbs. I was unable to secure sound
sleep, and on arising in the morning
would feel as tired as before going
to bed. My stomach was in a bad
condition, and the least movement
caused my heart to palpitate violently. Doctsirs' treatment failed to oz
of benefit to me, and I was :'n a very
discouraged state when a friend advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. Thinking that they might relievo me a little I procured a supply
and began taking them according to
directions. From the first I cou.ci
see that they were helping mc, an.l
by the time I had taken half a dozen
boxes I was free from the ailments
that had made my life miserable. It
is now several years since I took th3
pills and not the least sign of my
old trouble has since shown itself. 1
would strongly urge the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for any person
who has a weak or run down system
and I am sure they will not fail lo
toe beneficial."
To those who are weak, easily
tired, nervous, or whose blood is out
of coniit'on, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
come as a blessing, curing when all
other medicines fail, and restoring
those who give them a fair trial to u
full men*ure of health and strengtn.

Baring thus got rid of a crack, the
harsh and discordant tones of the bell

father Boyle called his attention to tho
change, and the latter could scarcely
believe It was the same bell.

pastor, "to cause such a change in the

using them was wonderfnl." As a safe family medicine Parmelee's Vegetable Pills caa
